I really like this gift-wrap. It’s a perfect way of using up paper scraps and there are no bows to get squashed. The best bit is that it moves around when you shake it.
If you are struggling to buy clear cellophane then try your local florist (that’s where I got mine from – and it was really inexpensive).
I can see a winter snowflake version coming on already!
I‘ve been playing around with accordion paper folding for about a year now and thought it was high time that I put something on the site! The technique is really addictive.
This project shows how to make a simple candle holder. All you need is some paper, a glass jar and a little bit of glue so it’s a really affordable project. If you fancy having a go then you will find a full how-to after the jump.
***IMPORTANT*** If you want to use this as a candle holder please make sure that you put a glass jar inside the paper cuff and ensure that there is no paper hanging over the top of the jar (otherwise it may set on fire). For safety reasons I would recommend using battery operated candles instead.
If you want to explore more of these folding techniques then you can buy a fantastic book called ‘Folding Techniques for Designers‘ by Paul Jackson. I had it as a present last Christmas and love it. (If you are strapped for cash then do try your local library ^_^)
I‘m cracking on with Halloween craft already! First up are some pop-out party invitations. There are two versions, one with text and one without. They are really easy to make and take about 10 minutes per invite.
If you want to make a card rather than an invitation then check out this post here.
If you want to have a go then you’ll find full instructions and templates after the jump.
Hello peeps. You can find some of my printable gift boxes on Oh Happy Day today. Come back tomorrow to see some popup Halloween invites.
Off topic: My kids went back to school today after their six week holidays – the weather has been better than it has been for years in England so it’s a bit sad to think that Autumn is now rolling in. Hope you’ve have had a fun summer too.
